Yes, it is really Cotton Candy Day, a day that certainly deserves to be recognized as sweet and spectacular. We created a way to celebrate with our dolls by making them some DIY doll sized treats. Here is Mackenna sporting her Cre8time pin and sharing her own little bag of cotton candy. She (like me) is also a fan of people creating everyday and of eating sweet stuff.
We used Fuchsia Rit Dye (used this instead of Petal Pink because polyester doesn’t take the color too fabulously and we wanted to get a light pink) and Poly-fil to create our lookalike cotton candy. To get started we added Fuchsia Rit Dye to HOT water in a mason jar (half and half) then put in a handful of the Poly-fil.
Then we put the lid on the jar and shook it up and bunch of times. When it was all covered as much as polyester will saturate (which is not much), we took it out with tongs and let it dry completely before it in plastic with a skewer sticking out for a stick.
